Everybody Makes Mistakes

On the Heels of the Toronto Trade Show

Except for a footwear malfunction, the trade show went splendidly.

Pardons and waivers can be a sensitive topic, especially when dealing with travel, or instances where a client may have to cross the border. That is why we are more than happy to provide travel agents with discreet and informative material that can help them with clients who have records, and even offer them a chance to make a commission as well. However, little did we know that our booth would be sensitive as well, and we suffered a few holes in the floor from the high heel shoes! Egads! Next time, sorry, no high heels.

The T.O. down-low.

We went to a trade show in Toronto at the end of March. It was a good opportunity for us to hear some of your stories. It always amazes us how many people do not understand their full rights regarding pardons and waivers.

The Canadian Government Has Pardons For A Reason

Canada is strongly opposed to discrimination. If you have served your sentence, done your community service and/or paid your fines, and three or more years have passed in which you’ve shown good behaviour, then chances are, you are eligible for a pardon.

Your record won’t go away on its own, but with the help of proven professionals, we can help you remove it as discreetly as possible.

Criminal Records Are So Last Year

With background checks more prominent than ever, employment becoming scarcer and money woes at every turn, it’s little wonder Canadians are applying for pardons in record numbers.

In 2007, nearly 25,000 people applied for pardons. That is nearly 50% more per annum than a few years ago.

Part of this can be attributed to greater awareness of the possibility of pardon in the first place. Part of this is surely stemming from PSC’s own ad campaigns that a criminal record will not go away. A record will follow you for life.

Pardons prevent customs and the police from accessing your files. They keep your information hidden from potential employers, or even your boss doing a spot check at work.

With more and more people in Canada knowing about the benefits of pardons, and the concept of forgiveness a part of our everyday vernacular, it is only a matter of time before the lingering stigma of a record is removed as well.
